WWE fans who have been hesitant to upgrade to WWE2K22 will soon be left with no choice. 2K Games has announced that they will be sunsetting support for servers for both WWE2K19 and WWE2K20. The changes will be effective on June 30, 2022.

The sunsetting of the legacy servers will include all online functionality in the games. Online matches will no longer be available. Community creations will also be lost at that time.

The announcement came this morning via Twitter. It was noted that all WWE Games resources are going to focus on the latest release in the series. WWE2K22 came out on March 8 after a year hiatus from the series to revamp the game engine and add improvements.

“Attention WWE 2K community: On June 30, 2022, we will sunset support for WWE 2K19 & WWE 2K20 servers. This includes all online functions, such as online matches & Community Creations. We are turning our full focus toward supporting #WWE2K22. Thanks for your continued support!”

During WWE’s first-quarter earnings call, Stephanie McMahon boasted about the new release’s popularity. McMahon noted that the game has been streamed for over 5.6 million hours on Twitch. The company also has a new RPG in the making.

Gamers who are still a couple of years behind on the WWE2K series might want to think about grabbing the latest version. While single-player will still work, there won’t be any more online functionality. WWE and 2K games are focused on the present.
